For our next iteration of Museum From Home, we’re highlighting Enrique Chagoya's solo exhibition, Aliens, at the Triton Museum of Art. While the museum is temporarily closed, we are bringing the show to you!
Aliens includes paintings, drawings and prints, focusing on Chagoya’s continued engagement with the politics of immigration in his art. Drawing from his own experiences living on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, Chagoya juxtaposes secular, popular, and religious imagery in his satirical method of dissecting and rewriting “accepted” histories, from the viewpoint of colonized cultures. The exhibition includes examples of his large-scale editorial charcoal drawings; political paintings, drawings and prints that appropriate work from such diverse sources as James Ensor and Walt Disney; along with work from his most recent series, Aliens Sans Frontières.
